    So DK tweeted out millionaire maker ownership here http://playbook.draftkings.com/nfl/millionaire-maker-percent-owned-week-3/ which as of 230pm still includes ownership data for games that have not yet started. IMO this is a big leak and should never happen. It also seems like something that your average analyst should probably not have access too, and able to tell his buddies who is owned and who the best players have. Hey did you know that CSURAM has Randall Cobb going late? Given that they can access the macro results it seems probable they can access specific users during and/or before contests start.

    They definitely should no be sharing it publicly, if they’re going to do it just list the full rosters in the contest and call it a day.

  • letterj007

    If DK was publicly traded, this stock would be such a short.

    Everybody defending Ethan is a joke, he is single handedly going to bring down the industry, this stuff is making national headlines the government was already sticking their nose into things now it is goign to get very serious. Insider trading is illegal, what Ethan did is illegal, and for everyone saying it was just luck what are you smoking. I don’t care how good you are when you win that many times in such a short time and then we all find out you have been seeing peoples lineups and you know ownership percentages before lineups lock, that is not luck its not skill its straight up cheating. I hope everyone involved is fired, I wondered how so many employees constantly got first and made it to live finals, hope an investigation is conducted and all guilty parties put in jail. Thanks for ruining an amazing hobby!

    That’s basically my feeling.

    Disappointing that none of the so-called “big time players” are really chiming in. DraftCheat, TommyG, and a few others are tweeting about this… but many cannot speak freely as they are employed by FD or DK.

    And I agree with many posters here, this story is about to become big-time news.

    Yea – while frustrating, it makes more sense to just not post anything to add fuel to the fire. I’ve been checking in on Bales since there really isn’t anybody else I respect more on the DFS front. But, he’s gotta be in such a tight spot with his connection to DK and fantasy labs. Wonder if the ban will be made permanent and if that affects any of the employees that already won FFC seats.

    That’s Dave not Ethan.

    I think it’s quite obvious that this employee has been accessing data for a while now and using it to his advantage. The rake wasn’t enough for these greedy folks. They clearly have moles inside their companies cheating and stealing even more of the money. Sadly, the government is going come calling which is number one going to limit states that allow DFS play and number two the states that do allow it are going to require heavy regulations. That is if it doesn’t end up collapsing all together because of this. People have been suspicious as it is and we all know the talk of whether it’s a gambling gray area to begin win. Sadly, finding out something like this is going on is not surprising. Just look at what ending up taking down some of the online poker sites.

    Correction..my mistake

    Lol, I found out about this because Chainsaw posted about it on facebook…It’s everywhere

    Why? There will likely be a ton of overlay for next week’s contests with the Pros out and others likely scared to play.

    ethan is not on the sweet show

    @Cal said...

    Gotcha. It’s a good question. There’s a narrative going now that Ethan was trying to DM this data to a friend and not trying to post it on behalf of DK. I’m hoping Colin’s response will stamp that out. My guess is that it was a Tweet from the DK Playbook twitter account linking to a DK Playbook article.

    Cal, any idea as to when a response will be out there? Just seems to me that the longer there’s silence, the worse it gets and the more the worst is assumed by the masses.

    And I think cashing out over the next few days is going to take a long time. Wouldn’t be surprised if DK has the most withdrawal requests in one day tomorrow after this game ends. Like a run on the bank.

  • Skyway

    How is this not illegal , truly looking for clarifications..

  • dmiller10nc

    @phillygamecox said...

    I agree…but also don’t think comments on a message board will be the reasons it hits the fan. It will be the lack of controls, lack of response, and employees posting information that should not be made public when contests still can be changed.

    I agree philly. I am very skeptical, but I don’t want us to flood this forum because people are using this stuff in articles. I want transparency, but I also love DFS and don’t want us to shut down this industry. I had 1,200 dollars on fulltilt when it shut down and I haven’t seen a dime of that, I don’t want this to spiral into that. We have to just wait, be patient and hopefully there is a logical resolution from DK and FD. But us throwing out illogical or misguided assumptions doesn’t help. We are all stunned and questioning the integrity of this, but we have to let it play out and not fuel the fire of other media outlets or we doom ourselves.

    why will the pros be out?

    If so, it will test the claim that contest finds are separated and never touched for operational use. If contests for next we, are posted and they didn’t scale down, then with the Pros out there should be overlay.

    What was Gabey saying? I saw a few pages back that someone said he was the only one speaking out along with draftcheat.
